MY GOLDEN GLOBE PREDICTIONS

Many say the Golden Globes should not be taken seriously. The word is that they only nominate big names to get the top actors to attend the ceremony. It was also recently reported that a publicist is suing the Hollywood Foreign Press because they take bribes from studio executives to support their films. That may explain BURLESQUE and THE TOURIST nominations. One fun part of the Golden Globes is that everyone gets to drink which makes for some entertaining speeches. This is my first attempt at predicting the Globes so here it goes. My picks are underlined:
